Canada C3 Expedition Update: Tracking link now live PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   
A live tracking link, generated by QRP-labs, the supplier of the tracking hardware, has been activated. It is being hosted in Canada by Jeff Milne, VE3EFF, and can be found online at: http://www.qrp-labs.com/c3.html. The track will be shown on the map by a series of red dots to draw a continuous track line. The location is based on the smallest maidenhead grid square locator code.
Note: At the time of this update on June 1, 2017, the track is shown in blue and depicts Sunday’s relocation of the ship from Prescott, Ontario to Toronto. You need to zoom in to see the path and it will be easier to see it as the ship continues on its voyage.
For more information on Canada C3 and the WSPR project please see the information provided in the previous article ​An Epic Journey to Celebrate Canada and Connect Canadians.

A Canada 150 Signature project, Canada C3 is a 150-day expedition from Toronto to Victoria via the Northwest Passage. It will inspire a deeper understanding of our land, our peoples and our country.

The Canada C3 organizers have kindly permitted a group of enthusiasts under the leadership of Barrie Crampton, VE3BSB, to install a WSPR (pronounced "whisper") beacon on the Canada C3 vessel. This provides a unique opportunity to track the vessel on its 150-day sailing voyage around the Canadian coast – the longest coastline in the world.
Stopping at a different location every day, Canada C3 will visit 50 coastal communities, 36 Indigenous communities, 13 National Parks and 20 Migratory Bird sanctuaries. Canadians are encouraged to join the adventure as a virtual expeditioner, tracking the voyage online via website updates and museum hubs.
The WSPR project will be part of science experiments and research to be carried out on the voyage. The location and frequencies for the WSPR, CG3EXP, may be viewed at: http://wsprnet.org/drupal/ wsprnet/map
